Recall Alert: 2013 Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac SRX

General Motors is recalling 26,582 model-year 2013 versions of the Buick LaCrosse sedan and Cadillac SRX crossover due to a transmission problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Affected are LaCrosses manufactured between April 25, 2012, through March 6, 2013, and SRXs built between May 29, 2012, through Feb. 18, 2013 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). According to NHTSA, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because a software problem could cause the transmission to inadvertently shift to Sport mode, removing any transmission-related engine-braking effect. This could increase the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners starting March 28, and dealers will reprogram the transmission control module for free. Owners can call Buick at 866-694-6546, Cadillac at 866-982-2339 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
